NEW YORK: As Windows phone giant Nokia getting ready to debut its first pheblet, now new report suggest that Nokia Lumia 1080p tablet will have the similar design like Samsung Note.

A new concept of the Lumia 1080 phablet aka “Bendit” gives us a glimpse into what the Galaxy Note-like device from Nokia may look like. The Lumia 1080 prototype is courtesy of Neowin, which has envisioned a “completely fictional” Lumia 1080 phablet.

“We present our entirely speculative designs to you on a completely fictional device: the Nokia Lumia 1080, a 5.5-inch phablet, complete with stylus for handwriting input. The non-existent handset is destined to launch on our similarly imaginary ‘Neocom’ mobile carrier,” notes Neowin.

The concept design shows off the “speculative” Nokia Lumia 1080 phablet will make its debut with a 5.5-inch Full HD Super AMOLED capacitive display including Gorilla Glass 3 protection in tow. The device will have a pixel resolution of 1920 x1080 pixels (Full HD) and a pixel density of 440 pixels per inch (ppi).

A quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 2.3GHz processor will power the device. The Lumia 1080 will also pack in Adreno 330 graphics, 2GB of RAM and have either 32GB or 64GB of on-board storage, with the option to expand to a further 64GB via microSD.

Neowin also imagines the phablet with a powerful 16-megapixel primary PureView camera with dual LED flash, as well as a 2.2-megapixel front-facing snapper. The Lumia 1080 is also envisioned sporting a powerful 3,200 mAh battery to juice up the Windows Phone 8.1-powered device.

That’s not all, however, as Neowin takes things up several notches higher for the Nokia phablet. The Lumia 1080′s concept also shows off a fingerprint scanner (located at the rear of the device), a scratch-resistant polycarbonate body and a stylus. If that wasn’t enough, the Windows Phone 8.1 software would enable users to customize Live Tiles to a greater extent and the new Notifications hub would incorporate texts, emails, tweets etc.

Rumors have been rife that Nokia will launch it’s first-ever phablet sometime this year, with a recent report pointing to the first week of November. Microsoft is expected to push out the GDR3 update as well, which is believed to support a Full HD 1080p screen and quad-core processors, by year end.

With Nokia remaining mum on the launch of the impending phablet, we’ll have to contend with the concept of the Lumia 1080 for now.
